Some of the words I wouldn't use in real life conversations. And they do not run through the conjugations so therefore you still need to go elsewhere to improve your vocabulary

Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new foreword and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant and answer some of the most common questions he has received over the past 15 years.

not good at all

the reading was very boring and it felt like it was going nowhere. Word of advice listen to the sample before getting the books. Also I thought the topics were going to be more practical and applicable to real life situations with work/business relationships, maybe even some assertiveness coaching etc. Instead it was a lot of mumbo jumbo on how to be a better husband and so forth.

Really good book !!!

I've been reading a lot of real estate books and this one is very good it has a smooth layout, and gives good guidelines. There's only so much detail you can get from a book after a while though. To learn anymore you would have to start taking advanced classes or even better yet . . . actually buying a property!!

How do we find hot stocks without getting burned? How do we fatten our portfolios and stay financially healthy? Former hedge-fund manager and longtime Wall Street commentator Jim Cramer explains how to invest wisely in chaotic times, and he does so in plain English, in a style that is as much fun as investing is, or should be, when it's done right.

Stephen Hawking's worldwide best seller, A Brief History of Time, has been a landmark volume in scientific writing. Its author's engaging voice is one reason, and the compelling subjects he addresses is another: the nature of space and time, the role of God in creation, the history and future of the universe.

Have you ever been lied to? Of course you have, whether you knew it or not. Ever caught a spouse, business partner, parent, boss, or child brazenly lying right to your face? What if you could tell someone was lying, just by listening to them, and observing their action and behavior? Here's the first audiobook that gives you the tools to figure out what's really going on.

I had a lot of great expectations having heard so much about the book. But unfortunately it was a big let down. It kept rambling on and on about trivial topics and was very redundant. I couldn't get past the first few chapters.

The first half is just examples of what Trump has done in the past but doesn't have much to do with the average investor. It mostly applies to big-time commercial investors but doesn't really get into much detail. The second half has more applicable tips to use in real estate.
